I am very disappointed to see how this beautiful country of ours is being crippled by its leaders.
Whenever a person or organization decides to set up a business, they are always given guidelines and all the Rules of law pertaining to that business, e.g. – environmental impact, quality of goods, and services taxes etc., and very often when these persons or organisations fail to comply with the law, they are taken to court and penalized.
GECOM, on the other hand, does not seem to know about the constitution and the supreme laws of Guyana, or if they do know and they are not ready to hold elections in time according to the constitution, then they are guilty of breaking the supreme Laws of Guyana governed by the constitution, and thus should be taken to court and penalized.
GECOM is consuming billions of tax dollars, and failing to deliver quality services. These people should be removed from office and replaced by individuals who can provide quality service for money received, in a timely manner.
We need a Government who will always have full respect for the Constitution, the National Assembly, the Supreme Court, and the Chief Justice. No excuses can be accepted or tolerated from GECOM because our country is not blessed with one hundred million people, and with the amount of money we are spending, we are supposed to have a valid voters’ list at all times.
We have heard silly complaints from people about young people’s names not on the list, bloated list and dead people’s names on the list, for over ten years. Was this the same list that the coalition triumphed with in 2015? Whenever people die in this country, a report is made to the Police, the local authority, the N.I.S…why does GECOM not have access to such information, and how much time and effort will it take to delete their names from the voters’ list?
National registration starts at age 14, voting age is 18; GECOM has four years to include those few young people’s names, and this is not done.
Are these failures a lack of competence? It is now high time the Government and GECOM stop dragging their feet in reverse gear away from elections. Every bad move or decision made by the Government is putting an extra feather in the Opposition’s cap.
